I know that New York State offers a $5,000 tax credit for solar. But it seems pretty confusing. How does it work?

Hi Meerkatz

New York's Solar Equipment Tax Credit is a generous, flexible incentive. It will allow you to get back 25% of whatever you pay for solar power (whether you purchase or lease your system), up to $5,000 - provided, of course, that you have sufficient state tax liability.

We've recently written up a series of articles on the topic of NY's Solar Tax Credit, with links below. Please have a look through and get back to us if anything remains unclear.

Part 3: How to claim New York’s Solar Tax Credit if you go solar with a lease or PPA

Good luck going solar!
